We are proud of the long standing affiliation with Mills-Peninsula Hospital where we provide care for patients with more complex medical problems. We also are associated with several local out-reach programs providing free surgical care to those in special need.
Receiving or providing continuing education has been a continual effort in our practice. Keeping abreast of the new trends and treatments or refinement of current techniques in surgery and anesthesia by updating our knowledge through continuing education in the United Stated and abroad is an important part of our philosophy.
Being a resource of information and providing continuing education through seminars, technical classes and publications allows us to collaborate as a team with your dentist in providing the very best in dental care.
